Alvin had to look after the farm and his brother’s house for a while.
His brother had gone out of the country to visit his daughter, who’d had a baby.
He called Alvin for assistance, and Alvin agreed. Alvin mainly worked online so that the stay wouldn’t interfere with his work. The next day, he got on the road and arrived right on time as his brother was due to leave the next day. There were farmworkers, so his job was to oversee that everything was okay. It was summer, so Alvin loved the AC in the farmhouse. It was a bit strong, but he didn’t mind because of the heat and humidity in the area. A few days later, Alvin started feeling unwell. He had always left the AC unit on but didn’t think it was the source of his discomfort. When he couldn’t take it anymore, he drove to town to see a doctor. Alvin explained to him his symptoms and answered several other questions. All this time, the doctor was examining him and writing down the information. The doctor asked Alvin about the air conditioning in the house and if it was too strong. Alvin said it was stronger than he was used to and learned that was the source of his aches and pains. The robust AC unit was affecting his health and causing him respiratory issues. The doctor advised Alvin to turn it down when he got to the farmhouse and avoid sitting directly under an air vent. The strong AC winds would cause more harm in the long run if he kept cranking up the air conditioning. Alvin was shocked but agreed to follow the doctor’s instructions. He got some medicine and headed home, where he turned down the AC system. It was better to feel a bit hot than sick due to high AC winds.
